I just set up a new server with a very restricted PF configuration. One problem: I can no longer install software with ports (i.e, the / usr/ports collection.) I have to disable PF to do so. Obviously not a great solution.

Am I correct in guessing that ports uses FTP to grab source files from mirrors? I'm trying to figure out the smallest number of ports (the TCP/IP kind) that I need to open in my firewall. I don't want to enable incoming FTP requests, but do want to allow outgoing ftp requests, I believe.

Am I on the right track, here?

Thanks: John
